What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness around the world. They most often affect people over 40 and develop gradually. Cataracts may appear in either eye but can occur in both.

People with cataracts experience milky or cloudy buildup on their eye’s lens that obscures their vision. Cataracts can make it harder to drive, read, or recognize faces, and lead to complete blindness when left untreated.

In Canada, cataracts cause blindness in more than 3.5 million people. However, they can often be removed with surgery.

What Are the Different Kinds of Cataracts?

3 common types of cataracts are:

What Are the Symptoms of Cataracts?

The following symptoms are all associated with cataracts:

  • Increasingly cloudy or foggy vision
  • Gradual progression of myopia
  • Changes in colour perception
  • Difficulty driving at night due to glare from light sources
  • Seeing double
  • Sudden differences in your corrective lens prescription

How Are Cataracts Treated?

Modern corrective lenses and environmental changes can offset many early symptoms of cataracts. But it’s still critical to diagnose and treat them as soon as possible if you want to prevent vision loss.

People with cataracts that significantly affect their vision may need cataract surgery to restore their eyesight. Talk to your optometrist to find out if cataract surgery is right for you.
